Subject: Freedom of Information request - Ratification of international treaties by the UK
From: [FOI #108116 email]
To: [email address]

Dear Prime Minister’s Office,

Could you please disclose who is responsible for:

a) signing international treaties and conventions on behalf of the
UK
b) ratifying such treaties and conventions.

Please state to what extent signing obligates the UK to fulfill
treaty and convention provisions.

Similarly, ratification.

If a convention or treaty is relevant to a matter before a UK
Court, at which court level, if any, is the court obliged to take
the treaty or convention into account in making a judgment.

Why are treaties and conventions not submitted directly to
Parliament for ratification/accession?

Yours faithfully,

Jan Cosgrove (Mr)
